, now what? one of the leading democrats on gun control, chuck schumer said he is in talks with high nra ratings and is in talks with somebody who is perhaps the best rating from the nra, tom coburn, a republican from oklahoma. schumer has delayed releasing his legislation on background checks in hopes to make tom coburn part of this legislation. >> but not necessarily on magazines or assault-type weapons? >> reporter: correct. just on background checks. still sources high up in the democratic party here in the senate say that they simply do not think that those high-capacity magazines or, more importantly, an assault-weapons ban, that that has any chance. they think the background checks has the most realistic of any passing. >> dana, thanks very much. a short time after the hearing ended, gabrielle giffords and her husband, retired astronaut, mark kelly, visited president obama over at the white house. you see a picture that has just now been released. mark kelly is in "the situation room." come on in, mark. we're going to talk about what happened today and where you stand on all of th
biden met with the national rifle association as well as other gun owner and sporting groups. the nra released a statement, we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and attached to the second amendment. they said that it's unfortunate that the administration continues to push on failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems. biden says his task force on gun violence will send it is recommendations to president obama by next tuesday. while the vice president says he hasn't come to any specific conclusions yet, he sees an emerging consensus on certain ideas. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks, not just closed to gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> assault weapons are another possible target for new gun restrictions. cnn crime and justice correspondent joe johns visited a gun store today and will join us in a little bit to discover what turns an ordinary gun into an assault weapon and the changes that

[video clip] >> it's an honor to be here on behalf of 4.5 million moms, dads, sons, daughters in every state across our nation who make up the national rifle association of america. there are 4.5 million active members of the nra. they are joined by tens of millions of supporters throughout the country. it is on behalf of those millions of decent, hard- working, law-abiding citizens that i am here today to give voice to their concerns. the title of today's hearing is "what should america do about gun violence?" we believe the answer is to be honest about what works and honest about what does not work. teaching safe and responsible gun ownership works. the nra has a long and proud history of doing exactly that. our child safety program has taught 25 million young children that if they see a gun, they should do four things. stop, don't touch, the area, call an adult. as a result of this and other private-sector programs, fatal firearms accidents are at the lowest level in 100 years.
action the shooter cho, including that day, was already illegal. a spokesman for the nra said that it is disappointing, but not surprising that she, senator feinstein, is focused on curtailing the constitution instead of protecting -- excuse me, prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health care system. many say that they are not ready to support a new assault weapons ban. lou: thank you very much. shannon bream, fox news correspondent. one side claims we must reduce firepower available to those who were killed to prevent deaths when we can. many say that the 1994 assault weapons ban did nothing to rectify this. our two guests join us now to discuss the matter. thank you both for being with us tonight. are you hopeful that dianne feinstein's legislation will actually be template for what the democratic party will achieve? >> well, her bill is part of what the democratic party hopes to achieve and what the president hopes to achieve. gun control has always been a tough night. i helped lead the fight in 1994 when he passes them the first time. sure enough, we did get

of testimony. >> you know i hope what happens, had he testifies in the committee tomorrow is that the nra presses him on the second amendment. does that mean that citizens should be able to have massive fire power to fight a future government. they would lose credibility with their own base. there is a real dangerous current fed on the internet and youtube, of people talking very threatening violent language about what would happen if congress were to impose an assault-weapons ban, and other gun control measures like that father outline, which was quite well said. and i think mr. lapierre needs to address that, including even the conspiracy theories that are circulating among gun rights activists, who claim that the
